It has repeat and program functions via the remote.

It easily replaced my Scott Nixon TubeDAC (with Amperex 7308 tube). Detail and soundstage is better by a far margin on the E5 with very neutral overall sound.
Thanks for info

Do you recommend getting the 120hr QA test before shipping or is it not necessary?

I don't think the QA test is necessary, but

1) it will ensure that the unit wasn't damaged while going from Eastsound>Cattylink

2) they may be more motivated to help you if you have trouble with it down the line, having had the QA test gives you some leverage. I haven't heard of anyone having trouble with their unit though.

Absolutely.

Will reveal any problems before you have them.

I just sold my Chinese tube headphone amp and am back to listening to my speakers after nothing but SA5000's use for over 2 weeks.

I have had good equipment for years except for a CD player - limping along on NADS while watching how SACD developed. Listened much to my speakers with the NADS over the years, so know the sound well. I got to say the E5 makes the NAD 542 sound like an old car AM radio. I keep hearing great sounds that were never there with the NAD. Sorry to fan-tout again, people.

Does anyone have any experience with the Marantz DV7600 (999.99) or the Marantz DV6500 (599.99)?

They are both universal players that play DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, SACD, and CD formats.
